A catch-all mailbox receives email messages sent to invalid addresses under the exact same domain. For instance, a message sent to the misspelled suport@domain.com will go to support@domain.com if the catch-all feature has been enabled for the latter. Thus, you can receive emails from friends or clients who may have sent a message to your email address with a typo or to an obsolete one, which they may still have, but you have already deactivated. Just one mailbox per domain can be a catch-all one and email forwarding cannot be enabled for such a mailbox. This is due to the fact that at a certain moment you may start receiving spam emails in the catch-all mailbox and the forwarding restriction implies that the spam will not be re-sent to a 3rd-party mailbox.
Catch-all Emails in Shared Website Hosting
Creating a catch-all mailbox will be extremely easy in case you have a Linux shared website hosting service with our company. You can activate this option through our powerful, albeit user-friendly Email Manager, which is an essential part of the Hepsia hosting Control Panel, via which you will administer the web hosting account itself. You’ll see all the email addresses that you’ve set up shown in alphabetical order and on the right side of each one there will be a small-size "Catch-all" icon, which will immediately notify you whether a certain mailbox receives all the emails associated with a given domain name or not. With one single click on the icon you can enable or disable this option whenever you want. If there’s activated email forwarding or in case a different mailbox has already been configured as a catch-all one for a particular domain name, you will get a warning text message from our system. The latter will not deactivate/replace anything automatically and without your consent.
Catch-all Emails in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You’ll be able to set up a catch-all address with no more than a click in case you’ve got a Linux semi-dedicated service with us and your email messages are handled by our cloud web hosting platform. All the addresses that you set up with any domain hosted in your semi-dedicated hosting account will be listed in the Email Manager section of your Hepsia hosting Control Panel. Each of them will have a tiny "Catch-all" icon next to it, so all it will take to enable this feature will be to click that icon. In the very same fashion you will be able to deactivate the feature, in case you no longer need it. Our system will let you know in case you’re trying to enable a second catch-all address for a particular domain name or if there is active email forwarding, but it will never modify or deactivate anything automatically and without your consent.
